Camp Wheeler, Georgia

17 February 1944

Dear Folks

I had a nice birthday thanks to you. I enjoyed Dad’s letter so much. I hate to think of missing all Bobby’s cute actions. I can just imagine how cute he really is now. Did you see the book Aunt Grace & Beverley sent me? It is grand. Everyone is enjoying it. It certainly is true to the situations it portrays. Phil sent a nice letter and a check for three dollars, and two snaphots one of Janice, Bobby and him and one of Meae and Bobby. Both were very good likenesses.

Tuesday evening Marjorie took me in town to the show. We saw Deanna Durbin, in His Butler’s Sister. I certainly enjoyed it. It cost only 25¢ a piece for Service people, so our evening was not very expensive. Bus fair is 30¢ round trip. We had a late pass and didn’t get in until 10 minutes past 11 !!! We might have been able to make it on time but we couldn’t be sure of it. You see Macon is an hour earlier than Camp Wheeler. So that 11 o’clock here is only ten o’clock in town and the movies aren’t over or anything else one might want to go to.

Last night the Little Theater of Macon put on a special performance of their play “Mr. & Mrs. North” for the benefit of the Service People. They furnished transportation for us and gave the performanec [performance] free. There was a crowded bus full of WACs amd several buses of the men. It was very well done, particularly Pam who might easily have been wrongly impersonated. This girl was perfect, not silly but just irresponsible.

Think I’ll stay home tonight for a change.

Love and many thanks.


P S Those cookies were swell as I mentioned before. There really isn’t anything quite as good.
